Mississippi Association Goes to Bat Over Zoning Changes

From Mississippi, the Rankin Ledger reports that the Rankin County Board of Supervisors has delayed action on the county’s revised zoning ordinance and map. The move came after residents and the Mississippi Manufactured Housing Association expressed concern several changes are too restrictive for manufactured homes. Association director Jennifer Hall told MHMSM.com that there hasn’t been enough of a use change in the area to warrant the rezoning from agricultural to Residential 1A. Hall points out that under the proposed zoning, cows, horses, goats and other farm animals would be allowed in the new zoning without a permit, but manufactured housing would require review. Moreover, Hall says that a review process has not been defined and will most likely be determined by whether neighbors are likely to complain or not. Hall says a defined process would need to be followed, and as it stands, determining whether a home is allowed or not is left to the subjectivity of Supervisors who have appointed themselves to the Planning Commission. Look for an upcoming full report on MHMSM.com.
